Fun Friends Parent Sessions

Please have a look here for a set of Fun Friends sessions, which are designed for you to carry out with your child at your own pace. They have many benefits which are outlined below:

  • Helping other people including family, peers, and teachers
  • Self-awareness of body clues (e.g. tense means stressed, butterflies means nervous)
  • Relaxation techniques for the body and mind during stressful situations
  • Engaging and relating to peers and making friends

After undertaking Fun FRIENDS, parents and teachers may notice the following changes in a child:

  • Improved confidence
  • Increased ability to cope with stress
  • Increased ability to cope with fear
  • Enhanced social skills
  • Improved ability to communicate better with adults
  • Boosted self esteem
  • Increased happiness and enthusiasm

Please work your way through the sessions, if you need any advice or would like to ask more questions please email Mrs Davidson on p3@balmorallearningtrust.co.uk
